A Long Way Home

by Becky Doughty

A Long Way Home

A Long Way Home can be read as part of The Fallout Series or as a stand-alone romance novel.

“This modern retelling of the prodigal story delves into heavier topics such as abuse and rape, but with such a careful touch, it never felt overwhelming. As usual, the writing was lyrical and very visual, like a movie playing in front of me.” ~ Heather Day Gilbert, USA Today Bestselling Author

“Dancing helped me forget…”

“Forget the pain of what I’d left behind. Forget the shame of what I’d done. Forget the fact that my future felt as untethered as the caravan in which I traveled.” ~Samantha Clark

On the run, Savannah Clark lives her life as a modern-day bohemian, hiding her identity behind her beaded scarves and swirling skirts. Marek and the Gypsies, a troupe of dancers and musicians, follow the Renaissance and Medieval Faire circuits, never staying in one place for very long. Her disguise, however, doesn’t fool those who know and love her best, nor does it completely hide the evidence of how difficult living in fear can be.

But an unexpected encounter with Jordan Ransome, her first love, tears open old wounds, and tragic news from home brings Savannah face to face with her worst fears. Will she run again, a victim of the lies she’s come to believe about herself and those she left behind, or can she trust her heart enough to embrace the girl she once was as the woman she has become?

NOTE: This book may contain triggers due to the topic of domestic violence and sexual abuse.

Cast A Road Before Me

by Brandilyn Collins

Cast a Road Before Me

Bradleyville Series Book 1
———-
“A course-changing event in one’s life can happen in minutes. Or it can form slowly, a primitive webbing splaying into fingers of discontent, a minuscule trail hardening into the sinewed spine of resentment. So it was with the mill workers as the heat-soaked days of summer marched on…”
———-
City girl Jessie, orphaned at sixteen, struggles to adjust to life with her barely known aunt and uncle in the tiny town of Bradleyville, Kentucky. Eight years later (1968) she plans on leaving—to following in her revered mother’s footsteps of serving the homeless. But the peaceful town she’s come to love is about to be tragically shattered. Threats of a labor strike rumble through the streets, and Jessie’s new love and her uncle are swept into the maelstrom. Caught between the pacifist teachings of her mother and these two men, Jessie desperately tries to deny that Bradleyville is rolling toward violence and destruction.
